Re: 4k HDMI cords

You will get a compatible HDMI cable with the shipment. 

Most newer HDMI cables support 4k just fine.

A High-Speed HDMI cable capable of 4K should come labelled as such. If the cable or packaging is not labelled as such it is most likely the older HDMI cable only good for HD video / audio. I have never gotten a HDMI cable from Comcast with proper labelling. You can hook it up and try it (if unlabelled) but odds are against it supplying 4K signal.

I verfied the generic cable they sent with my 4k box supports  4k.

I would be nice if that could hold true from now on for all Comcast service areas.
